Full description
Every year the Great Pacific Humpback Whales leave their summer homes in Alaska and head for the algae-rich waters of Maui. And there are few better way to see these magnificent creatures up-close-and-personal than on board a luxurious catamaran. Choose from an early-bird tour, a cruise at 10:00, or departures around midday. You will sail along the western coastline of Maui from Ka’anapali. Experience the beautiful scenery as you keep your eyes open for Maui’s largest visitors. You will learn about the exciting mammals from a marine naturalist who will accompany you on board. You will even be able to listen to the whale songs live via brilliant underwater hydrophones. Enjoy the early morning cruise with delicious breakfast snacks, fresh Kona coffee, hot chocolate, and tropical juices. Take the mid-morning tour and you can enjoy exclusive Teralani ”POG”mosas and “Bloody Maui’s.” Or depart midday and enjoy assorted dry snacks, 2 ice cold beers on tap, wine, tropical juices, and sodas. Look out for pods of the gentle whales. If you are a lucky you may even see them breach, spy hop, or pec slap. You will definitely want to bring your camera for this one!
